New York's anti-terrorism funds pulled.

Congress has decided to take back the $125 million it promised New York in 2001 to pay for added security against terrorism. New York City's only member of Congress, Vito Fossella, said that this amounts to "something of a promise broken."

Yeah, Congressional Republicans will talk and talk and talk about security, but when it comes to actually doing anything about it, they can't be bothered. Meanwhile, the counterterrorism spending in Wyoming is beating the per capita spending on New York City. The next time there's a terrorist attack in New York, it'll be safe to say that the party in power did nothing to prevent it.

The Republican Party's gratuitous exploitation of the victims of the terrorist attacks in 2001 is all the more shameful now that they're defunding the program. How any New Yorker can even consider voting Republican is impossible to imagine. Republicans are scum.
